Donald Maass workshop rating: Five stars? Not enough. I have been writing, reading, rewriting, attending workshops, conferences, rewriting again... Why didn't I know about Donald Maass? "Writing the Break-Out Novel", a must have for those who are in doubt of what agents look for and what readers want. Examples galore! Helpful (not hints) information to transform blasé story telling into a page turning novel. Thanks RWA for the hook-up!
